About Penelope Bentley

We live in London and at the weekends go to our home in Suffolk.. I am in the film business and my husband is a lawyer. We have been going to Menorca for the past 25 years and we bought this house in 1995. We have furnished the house for ourselves rather than the rental market and we feel that is is a very comfortable home with beautiful gardens.

If you need further photographs please advise

Why Penelope Bentley chose Minorca (Menorca)

We are both very well travelled and when we first went to the island we fell in love immediately with the beauty of Menorca and the fact that it was so unspoilt. Even after 20 years we feel that this is a very special place and are very happy that building of any high rise properties is forbidden and that the whole island retains its individuality over main land Spain and it continues to be a very special place. Even in high season, one can escape into remote areas and many of the beaches are very safe and not too crowded... Restaurant offer good value for money for families and the sports facilities are excellent.

What makes this villa unique

The property is well furnished and very comfortable and is 5 minutes walk for the local supermarket and some very good eating places. The Gardens are very well tended throughout the year and there is a great terrace for evening dining where one can be totally secluded... The pool is a good size and there is also a jacuzzi at the back that seats at least 4 people... there are a number of terrasses around the house and for those who want shade throughout the day this is not a problem.

Perfect villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa had four good sized bedrooms and two large bathrooms with very comfortable sofas and two tables perfect for indoor dining if the need arises. There was a large table outside with plenty of chairs and there was plenty of loungers. The pool was big and very clean as was the jacuzzi and it was lovely to have the choice of the two. The villa was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses. It was very peaceful at the villa and we had a lovely holiday and will definetely be back as we love Platges de Fornells which has a lovely beach and good selection of restaurants on the doorstep,

We particularly enjoyed the garden and ate our meals on the terrace under the tree. The villa was comfortable and well-appointed.

Lovely villa and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here - two couples, grandma, and twenty-something grandson. I would say that the photos do not do the house or the grounds justice. The pool is a lovely place to relax round, and there are also numerous other places to gather - which we really liked. Often with holiday villas, if you have to eat indoors, things feel a bit sad - but here - the dining area and sitting room were very comfortable. The balcony to the front is a great spot for sun-downers, and the outside eating area comfortable, and private. The local beach - Tirant - is walking distance, and fun. This is also a good spot for walking - along the Cammi de Cavallis. We didn't rate the local bars, in the immediate vicinity, but the short hop into Fornells itself (a very nice walk along the rocks for all but Grandma) yields lots of restaurant and bars. Es Cranc particularly recommended. The owner is great to deal with, and her representative on-site attentative.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from our holiday in playas de Fornells. We had a fantastic stay in Penny's villa with its lovely pool, comfortable sun loungers, beautiful 4 poster master bedroom and several patio areas to choose from. We spent most of our evenings watching the sun go down from the front patio.

We love playas de Fornells and have been holidaying here for years. We would recommend Penny's villa to our friends and family as we were very well looked after and Penny has been extremely accommodating.

Great villa in the lovely resort of Playa de Fornells

  • 5 of 5

8 of us (4 adults, 4 children) shared this villa for 2 weeks in August 2016. The villa has four good sized bedrooms and a large lounge/dining area which actually was used very little as there is a lovely large patio area with barbecue as well as a verandah with spectacular views. What sets this villa apart is these outside areas as well as the lovely gardens and pool area.

Playa de Fornells itself was a superb area, quiet and picturesque. The villa is a 2 min walk to the local supermarket which is fine but a little expensive so I would suggest stocking up at the larger supermarkets in the major towns if you have a car.

There is a tapas bar very close by, the food here was mediocre but a great place for a drink with spectacular views and entertainment for the children. A further 3 restaurants are within a few minutes walk and all were good, if you get the chance though visit Ca Na Marga. This is in Ses Salines, approximately a mile away and is a meat lovers paradise with quality food cooked on an oak bbq and exceptional friendly service.

Fornells itself is a lovely town with a marina and many restaurants and shops to buy your Menorcan shoes. It is 2 miles by road or you can walk the coastal (rocky) path which is a mile and good fun but a little too tough for younger children.

The beach at Cala Tirant is a 10 min or so walk, a nice quiet beach with pedalo rental.

The weather was in the high 20's until the last few days when it was mid 30's. When the heat got to this level air con would have been appreciated at night time, although fans were provided to help.

Great holiday and we will be returning to Playa de Fornells at some point in the future.

Family holiday in June

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful four week stay in this beautiful villa. Nothing was too much trouble for Gill the manager. Penny the owner was very approachable by email, very responsive and was keen that we enjoyed ourselves. The villa was cleaned thoroughly every week and clean towels twice a week. The cleaners were discreet and the pool and garden were well maintained. The description of the villa was correct and shops and bars were within easy walking distance. We enjoyed good meals in Es Mercadel (which is short drive away) as well as locally. I would thoroughly recommend this villa to anyone, both families and groups of friends.
